PILOT Booster Board
Single phase motors may have difficulty starting especially when there is a high voltage drop.
Starting capacitor cut off
AVIATOR, available as an accessory for the PILOT 118, is equipped with specific contacts allowing it to be fitted directly onto the power board of the PILOT 118. The starting capacitor provided by the AVIATOR board is connected in parallel to the running capacitor but only in the starting phase; when the motor is running the AVIATOR will disconnect the starting capacitor.

In traditional boosters the starting relay is triggered by the voltage value across the starting winding which disconnects the starting capacitor after the motor has started; the limitations of this system are that different relay models are required depending on the motor used, supply frequency, maximum voltage of the starting winding and the on/off voltage of the starting capacitor. It needs a large stock of voltage relays specific to each motor and each manufacturer.

With the Nastec solution the control circuit of the PILOT constantly measures all the electric motor parameters and disconnects the starting capacitor only when necessary. This means that AVIATOR in conjunction with the PILOT 118 can operate any single phase motor from any major manufacturer, all that is required is to select the right value of starting capacitor for the size of motor.
